riding up the funicular was one of the things I wanted to do in Bergen. the view is nice form up top, even though it was snowing. I walked back down the mountain to town which was a nice walk - nothing special but nice rainforest type surroundings. was confusing walking down even with a map, but I guess you... More

A very nice and a must visit attraction in Bergen. It goes up till at a very high mountain on a steep railway with few stations in between. On the top it was a hailstorm .. there is a souvenir shop and restaurant also. We were treated really well by the train driver as there were very few people that... More

This is a must do in Bergen. The locals are quick to fill the carriages with skiing and snowboarding equipment and it may be a bit of a squeeze at times but hell its worth it! The descent of 1.064ft is a great way of seeing the city below and as you get to the top wander out onto the... More

At the bottom, Bergen was clear and it was nice out. About half way up the railway, it started to snow. At the top, it was snowing so hard, you couldn't even see Bergen or 2 feet in front of you. After deciding to leave (I had met a young lady on the way up), we walked back to the... More

Its a great way to see Bergen, it was a little overcast the day I went there but still great to spend an hour or so. It can be pretty icy up there in winter, so be prepared to slip and slide a bit. There are some walks you can do which might be good in summer.

The views from mt Floyen are simply incredible. Fantastic view over the city of Bergen and the surrounding countryside. Paths can be perilous on a colder day as ice does tend to gather, so always worth being mindful of your step. The Funicular is worth a ride, as the views from within the train itself are also fantastic.

We visited the Funicular railway at Bergen on our way back home, we had gone back to the Comfort Hotel, dropped our bags off, and decided to make the best of our time left before our flight the next morning, it was a terrible day weather wise, very heavy rain, but we needed to see as much of Bergen as...

On a fine day, this must provide one of the best views of Bergen. (The cable car was out of action when I was there). I was short of time but would have liked to have walked back down. Shops and restaurant at the top very busy, though, with queues for refreshments.

All I can say is Wow. A friend and myself first walked up Mount Floyen and back down again only to then take the Funicular back up, to experience the whole package of course. With breath-taking views we spent a couple hours sitting a talking while taking in the scenery, most defiantly recommended weather walking up or not this is... More
